Conference with participating scholars from NYU College of Arts and Science, Tisch School of the Arts, Steinhardt, NYU Law School, Latin American/Caribbean Studies Department, Liberal Studies, Asian/Pacific/American Institute. Organized by Dr. Dipti Desai, Associate Professor and Director of Art + Education Programs.

How does racism and discrimination operate in different geographical contexts, reflecting local tensions and prejudices and intersecting with issues of nationality, class, gender, religion, marginality, citizenship, and globalization? How does location affect the way in which we think about the social constructions of race and race relations? What role do historical experiences of slavery, discrimination, and colonialism play? How does the current migration crisis in Europe and rising Islamophobia help us better understand the similarities and differences between the U.S. and Europe?
